"The only way to do stop motion is by capturing individual frames while a camcorder records on tape with the images read back by a spinning head (which is why the image jumps or moves when you have it in pause) and thus not suitable for stop motion."

"Perhaps you could slice the back of the leg lengthwise (being careful to go only halfway through) then inserting the wire inside and gluing the leg back together."

"I appreciate the feedback you've given here, Geoff. It seems to me that in stop motion, just as in acting, you need to slightly exaggerate moves and expressions beyond that of real life."
